I'm managing a server with a csf and valid users keep getting blocked. I'm not familiar with the csf system and I do not understand how some users are getting connections counts in excess of 300 as the site is not even live yet.
The concern is what is causing these blocks and what will happen when the site goes live.
What counts as a connections? The site is quite dynamic and images are piped through a php files. IE Does this count as a connections? So if there are 300 images on the screen then this firewall would trigger?
How long does csf track the connections? So it is 300 concurrent connections? 300 connections per day? how does that calculation work?
What would be a safe CT_Limit? Should I double or maybe triple it?
Any advice would be appreciated.
